Horse Day


A Hands-On Approach to

Equine Topics

October 25th, 2014



  The UC Davis Animal Science Department introduces a new approach to Horse Day to be held at our Animal Science Horse Barn facility.  It will be a day filled with hands-on workshops dedicated to continuing education for the horse owner and enthusiast.  Tired of sitting in lecture halls?  Our new “Round Robin” venue will allow YOU, the attendee, to pick and choose those workshops that are of interest to YOU! A whole group presentation will occur both at lunch time and at the end of the day.  Whether your interests lie with reproduction, conformation or nutrition, there is sure to be something to attract you to our NEW Horse Day venue!  This day gives you the chance to interact with the animals, talk to the experts and be more involved with the material.  Come and join us for a day filled with new and exciting interactive information.
